Great trail on a perfect late November day ... newcomers should be aware the last 1/2 mile or so along the ridge seems to trend more towards a ‘Hard’ rating (rocky) than ‘Moderate’ ... regardless, hope to do this hike again in the future

Great trail if you want a workout and it’s well marked. It’s straight up the whole way and rocky, but the view at the top is so worth it. There is a fee when you get to the parking lot as it’s apart of Shannondoah Woods. When you park, you walk a bit up the road before the trail begins and people live there, so there are no other places to park. It was a gorgeous fall day and the leaves were still changing.

Great hike, nice incline up, then a rock scramble at the top. With this trail, you reverse it and and do the rock scramble again. It is a workout for sure and be prepared to use your upper body. It was very crowded yesterday (most weekends are in fall) but it makes for large back ups at the scramble. Especially if you are going opposite of the traditional traffic on your way back. Overall worth it and a ton or fun!
